Why talk to a career coach?

An aspiring South Carolina teacher talks with a career coach over Zoom

Get advice and info, based on where you’re starting and where you want to be. Talk to a coach 1-on-1 or join a group advising session, so you can take the next step in your journey with confidence.

TeachSC coaches are certified teachers. If you’re new to teaching, they can help you with questions like:

  • How do I know if teaching is right for me?
  • How do I get certified to teach? 
  • How do I choose a teaching program? 
  • Anything else you want to know! 

Plus, when you sign up with a coach, you’ll get access to every TeachSC product and service — all completely free.

Group Advising

A group of future SC teachers listen in on a career advising session

Not sure if a 1-on-1 call is right for you? Group advising sessions are also a great way to learn about becoming a teacher.

Group sessions are held monthly and cover topics like:

  • Steps to a teaching certificate and how to choose your subject area
  • How to choose a teaching pathway and program
  • How to get career and financial support from TeachSC

Every group call includes a Q&A session! Bring any questions that are top-of-mind for you. You can always schedule a 1-on-1 call if you think of more questions later.

To join a group session: Click the “Sign Up” button to open the group advising Eventbrite page. There, you can click “Select a date” and choose the session that works best with your schedule.

  • A picture of Sally in her classroom.

    Influenced by my sense of purpose and inspired by generations of educators, I teach my community’s fifth graders at Rosewood Elementary School in the same classroom where I was educated as a fifth grader. My deep pride and love is the sharing of my family’s four generations in this neighborhood school. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master of Education in Divergent Learning from Columbia College located in Columbia, South Carolina. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early/Adolescent Mathematics, with certificate endorsements in Middle Level Mathematics, Gifted and Talented, and Read to Succeed. While educating and nurturing students is my love and passion, I believe mentoring future and current educators has been my greatest contribution and accomplishment in the field of education. As a former Teacher Cadet and trained South Carolina new teacher mentor, I share my knowledge and passion for teaching with Teacher Cadets, teacher candidates, and induction level and current classroom teachers. I am the district’s facilitator for National Board Certification and lead awareness sessions for National Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification candidates. My service provides opportunity at the national level to develop assessments for the National Board certification process. My mentorship opportunities are showcased among my work throughout the school district. Driving her passion for educating others, I am a true example of a strong educational community ambassador.

    I believe that we all have a purpose; I believe that we should be an advocate for students, for teachers, and for education. I teach kindergarten; I am certified to teach early-childhood to high school students in social studies and English; I have experience teaching K-4 and 6-8 for at-risk students, during summer school. I am the local president of our education association, which is an affiliate of The SCEA and NEA; for the 2022-2023 school year, I have been selected as the Teacher of the Year for my school.
